< p _ngcontent-sc100="" class="news-annotation">Switzerland plans to allow the re-export of its weapons from third countries to Ukraine. This decision was made by the Security Commission of the National Council.
The corresponding decision was supported by 14 members of the Security Commission of the National Council of Switzerland. Recall that earlier Switzerland banned Germany from supplying its ammunition to Ukraine.
Switzerland plans to allow supplies of its weapons to Ukraine
Most members of the commission believe that Switzerland should contribute to European security and, accordingly, provide support to Ukraine. According to them, the proposed amendments are in line with the law on neutrality, since they do not allow the direct export of military equipment to conflict zones, but only concern declarations banning re-export from countries that buy Swiss weapons, the parliament's website says.
Thus, the supply of weapons to Ukraine from other countries in Switzerland was supported by 14 members of the Security Commission of the National Council of Switzerland, while 11 parliamentarians opposed.
Thus, Switzerland took an important step to allow other countries to re-export their weapons to our state.
Switzerland banned the transfer of its weapons
- Spain continues to provide Ukraine with military assistance to counter Russia. However, Switzerland previously vetoed the supply of certain types of weapons to Ukraine.
- Thus, Switzerland did not give permission for the supply of certain weapons and military equipment to Kyiv. Certain deliveries needed the permission of the producing country.
- In addition, Germany did not have the right to transfer to Ukraine new Swiss-made ammunition for the Gepard Armed Forces. As Swiss Minister of Economy Guy Parmelin explained, all because of the neutrality of the country.
